How to glue your DIY Mattress?

What you will need:

  1. Your pre-cut pieces of foam from our custom cut section
  2. All-purpose glue from our craft section
  3. A mattress cover from our Sleep Accessory section
  4. A protective cover under the foam you are gluing (craft paper, plastic or a tarp.)

Step 1.

  • Lay your protective covering down; it must be larger than the mattress to protect your work surface from glue overspray.

Step 2.

  • Lay your mattress core on top of the protective cover.

 Step 3.

  • Get the next layer you are gluing to the core and put it on top of the core to ensure you have a good fit.

Step 4.

  • Spray glue on the perimeter of both the core and the next piece as well as a full X on each piece.

Step 5.

  • Lay the glued sides together ensuring they are perfectly lined up so you do not have bulges when you zip you cover on.

Step 6.

  • Press the perimeter and the centre of the mattress (laying on it too) to ensure the glue has contact on both sides.

Step 7.

  • Provide sufficient time for the glue to dry (minimum 5 min).

Step 8.

  • Repeat steps 3-8 if you are adding additional layers.

Step 9.

  • Unzip cover, lay the bottom part or the cover down and set the assembled foam mattress on top of it, ensure it is square.

Step 10.

  • Let the top side of the cover on square… it together.

Step 11.

  • Set the mattress on the suitable foundation (see our foundation section) to support the full mattress.

Step 12.

  • Enjoy your sleep!

How to design and make your own Mattress?

How to take care of your mattress?

Your mattress is one of the biggest investments you make for a good night sleep, so taking care of this investment is important. Studies show that an average person sweats out half a pint each night, and needless to say, most of this sweat ends up in the mattress, pillow, duvets and the linens. A good mattress can last for years if you take a good care of it.

1. Rotate it

It is important to rotate your mattress once a season. Do not flip your mattress, as it is designed to be one sided. Naturally, your body makes more pressure on some parts of the mattress and less on some other parts, your hips transfer the highest pressure while your feet don’t. In order to prevent your mattress from losing its perfect shape, rotate it regularly and allow some time so it can get back to its original form.

2. Use a mattress protector

You read it right! An average person sweats out half a pint each night and that it is unavoidable. To keep the sweat away from your mattress, you should use mattress protectors. These useful protectors can easily be removed and washed, and act as a barrier to unwanted dirt and sweat to the mattress. Some mattress protectors come in the form of encasement which is bed bug and dust mite resistant. Your mattress hygiene is maintained.

Don’t know where to get mattress protectors? Don’t worry, we’ve thought it all, check Eversoft’s mattress shop and pick the protector for your mattress.

3. Do not eat on your bed

A breakfast in bed sounds fancy, doesn’t it? But think twice! all those tiny breadcrumbs falling on the mattress make a fancy meal for the dust mites too! These small creatures live on our skin sheds and small food particles falling on the mattress. So we have to say a breakfast in bed isn’t so fancy after all!

4. Do not sleep with wet hair

We talked about dust mites above but we forgot to mention where they love to live. These microscopic monsters love damp, warm and dark spaces where they can get plenty of food! That is why mattress experts strongly recommend you keep your bed dry. Foam is dark and the body temperature makes it warm. So you need to keep it dry to keep the mites away. Do not go to bed with wet hair and don’t leave your wet towel on your mattress.

Which Mattress is the BEST for you?

Getting a good night sleep depends on many factors: comfort, stress level, room temperature and more. However, the first step is the “Right Mattress”. The mattress needs to support your body in a neutral position. One in which your spine has a nice curvature and buttocks, heels, shoulders and head are aligned. If a mattress is too firm it will push on those main pressure points and take you out of alignment. If a mattress is too soft those pressure points will not be supported; either case can lead to an achy morning.

If the mattress is for a couple; if one has a medical or sleep issue, the person with the issues should be addressed first. Also, sleep on the largest mattress possible (King) for a couples best sleep. Mattresses come in various different sizes based on the country they are made in, and also the manufacturer who builds them.

Sleep Issues that confirm your need for a new mattress

1. Tossing and turning for a restless sleep or if it takes you a long time to fall asleep. In this case, you are not getting the comfort and pressure point relief. Your current mattress may be too firm, too soft or just worn out.

2. You sleep too hot or too cold. You can improve the mattress performance for your comfort by choosing open cell foam, Gel Foam, and Temperature control components.

3. Rolling off or sleeping in a hole. Your bed can be worn out or not constructed well, it is time for a new mattress.

4. Morning back pain, if this goes away with an hour, your mattress is not providing you with the correct support. Time for a new mattress. If your backache does not go away, a new mattress may help, but you need a doctor for help.

5. Partner Movement, if your partner disrupts your sleep you can purchase a mattress that minimizes motion transfer. Read more
